OUR 1958 FORD PREFECT 100E CLASSIC CAR 1172cc WESTMINSTER BLUE
PLEASE SEE MY PHOTO ALBUM, SHOWING THE NOW FULLY COMPLETE IMPROVEMENTS WE DID SINCE PURCHASE (ALL TO ORIGINAL STANDARD)
THIS IS THE LATEST ADDITION TO OUR CLASSIC CARS. IT IS A 4 DOOR 1958 FORD PREFECT 100E IN WESTMINSTER BLUE (NOT WINCHESTER BLUE AS I STATED VERBALY). THE ENGINE SIZE IS 1172cc. IT IS A GENUINE 27,000 MILES FROM NEW. THIS CAR WAS IN STORAGE FOR 20 YEARS, AND AT A SEPARATE TIME FOR ANOTHER 10 YEARS. IT HAS JUST HAD A RESPRAY IN IT'S ORIGINAL COLOUR. THE PREFECT IS IN ALMOST PERFECT CONDITION, AND WE JUST HAVE A FEW SMALL BITS TO DO TO FINISH IT OFF. IT HAS 3 GEARS AND A 'PULL' STARTER KNOB. THIS CAR WILL BE FINISHED OFF TO THE EXACT ORIGINAL SPECIFICATION. NO IT IS NOT FOR SALE, AND NO WE WILL NOT CUSTOMISE OR MESS WITH IT IN ANY WAY. I INTEND TO USE IT MYSELF AS A MORE PRACTICAL EVERY DAY CAR, AS IT IS AN IDEAL LADIES CLASSIC CAR. YES I KNOW OUR GIANT FINS N CHROME 1961 CHRYSLER NEW YORKER IS A LOT MORE EXCITING, BUT IT ONLY DOES 10 MPG AND TAKES UP A LOT MORE ROOM. THIS CAR LIVES IN ESSEX, ENGLAND. FILMED BY RUTHIE ON 26TH SEPTEMBER 2009.......UPDATE IN SPRING OF 2010.....THE CAR HAS NOW BEEN FINISHED OF IN FINE DETAIL, WITH EVERYTHING NOW LOOKING PERFECT !

Forget all your new-fangled gadgets. Forget performance, and unfortunately you safety too, but this is what motoring's all about! What a great experience...
Five Stars Ahead - Ford Anglia & Prefect
This is the 1952 launch film for the new E100A Ford Anglia and Prefect range. Shot in 35mm, this film has some lovely shots of Ford's design studios, the factory at Dagenham, the prototypes undergoing testing, and finishes with the new cars being used by delighted families. Filled with optimism, this film captures the mood of motoring from the time, where the country was emerging from the post-war gloom days and looking to a brighter new future.
Sweet Ford Anglia Footage...Very detailed shots of motor with all the extras! Ghost flames and all.
